Red Kite Ready to Halt Flight

Red Kite Business Advisors comes to a close.

It’s a sign of the times. Many companies are taking a hard look at their businesses and deciding next steps in moving forward while still engaged in the battle against the pandemic. A “new normal” is anticipated along with a paradigm shift in how many businesses will operate. Principal/Owner of Red Kite Business Advisors, Evelyn Olson Lamden, has determined that now is a good time to fully retire and close business operations.“This has been a decision in the making for quite some time, and in recent years, I’ve been in a semi-retirement phase. While I’ve not actively pursued new business, Red Kite has continued to function through referrals and by facilitating marketing workshops. With projects virtually at a stand-still, it seems the right time to close our doors.”

Red Kite was founded in 2007 by Lamden and a former business partner who left the business in 2013. The company has been active in working with supplier diversity groups and is certified to do business as a woman-owned business, with certifications in WBENC, WOSB, and CPUC. “The brand is well-established and if anyone is interested in taking over at the helm of Red Kite, they need to contact me soon. Otherwise, our flying kite will be grounded. While it’s a bit sad to close, I’ve been looking forward to spending more time with my volunteer and community work.” Lamden has spent several years serving on non-profit boards of organizations involved with the performing and visual arts, her passion. “Arts feed the soul and in these difficult times, I’m hoping that my efforts can help in the healing of our community and country.”

While no date has been set for closure, Red Kite will begin phasing out through the summer and anticipates a closure by the fall of 2020. Lamden may consider select projects during the phase out period.
